Featuring Prof. Justin Kirchoff and current Photography students, this workshop explores photography’s rich history of invention. Wet Plate Collodion, invented in the 1850s by Frederic Scott Archer, was used to document some of history’s most significant moments. During this workshop we will attempt to create portraits using the same equipment, techniques, and chemicals used during the dawn of the photographic medium.

Join artist Pilar Nadal ’13 for a letterpress printing demo at Pickwick Independent Press in Portland, Maine. Learn about the historic use of type for printed media, find out what a composing stick is, and see the operation of a Vandercook printing press as she produces a short edition of a poster.
This workshop/demo includes glimpses of work by MECA Illustration majors, work by instructor Michael Connor, and a fun sketch exercise using juxtaposition to create layered meanings using found objects and surprise prompts.
Prof. Annika Earley demonstrates how to create layers of transparency with your preferred paint of choice. Step-by-step instructions + materials.
